Master Thakur S Powdyel

Thakur S Powdyel

This is one dodgy lad. Very shifty eyed and sly. By himself, he is completely inconsequential. Invisible even. No charisma or presence. Could be a boy or girl. Sexless. But he has the knack of getting into the hearts and minds of those who matter. I have had to undo the damage done between different groups of students in the school, where they were on the verge of violent conflict. Somehow Thakur had managed to incite divisive passions in these groups of kids. When brought into one room and confronted by me, they were actually shocked to find little reason for misunderstanding. Thakur had played on their egos while quietly spending time with each group separately.

He is average in studies. Looks intelligent and bookish but not really smart. But he has a major sense of inferiority given his appearance, his caste and his weak voice. He tries to make up for this through deviousness and shrewdness. He thinks the world is against him when actually he is quite invisible to everyone.

A politician. He has no future in anything else.

  1. I was a student of Lyonpo and know him quite well. Your assessement of his character is way off the mark and unfair. He is not “divisive” as you put it but an intelligent and caring person. I have not met a person of higher integrity than Hon’ble Lyonpo Thakur. Perhaps, he is not a good politician or a manager but he is definitely a good and kind person. I am sure most of his former students will attest to my claim. I would urge you to consider and re-write his report card for he, of all people, does not deserve the flogging you have lavished on him.

  2. That’s very untrue. Learn to write some positive aspects of others. Don’t always criticise. After reading articles in this website, I can conclude that the authors of this website are the people who just want to pass negetive comments onto others. Are you realising that you are destroying things in process? Talk of good things that they have done. Don’t just criticise.

  3. I am of the opinion, that the schol master has a clear perspective and has graded the studets well, not marred by emotions and infuence. apologies for the spelling mistakes and bad grammer, I too was a student of the Hon’ble Lyanpo.

  4. i think what ever authour says is bullshit…
